Somewhere in Joo Chiat, July 2017. This could be a picture from my childhood, in the area i went to school in. My mother grew up here too, in a shophouse like the ones in this picture. But it wasn't as hip back in the olden days of my youth, and it certainly wasn't when Mum was a kid, centuries ago (sorry Mum 😂). Everything's been hipsterised, swankified, revitalised. I love it.
Somewhere in the depths of the housing estate, my old kindergarten still stands, as does the primary school compound, where swarms of bats would hang from the eaves of the old chapel while we played in its grounds at recess.
